Coos Bay OR, bridges and cobra orchids?
We took a drive up the coast to Florence and a bit beyond a couple of days ago. Oregon has some of the most beautiful bridges and we drove over 2 on the way. On the way back we stopped to check out a natural garden that grows cobra-orchids! Very interesting plants. You can see how they get their name as they do look a bit like cobras....but the real interesting part is that they are carnivorous. They, like the venus fly-trap, attract insects inside them where the insects get stuck and are eventually consumed by the plant!
The Oregon coast is spectacular, I will have lots of pics of it in future posts to prove it!
